Fitness Friday #10

Posted Oct 12 2012 5:42pm

Happy Fitness Friday!

We are halfway through bootcamp already!  It is going by soo fast and I’m loving every minute of it.  Even though some workouts are REALLY challenging (like L-wall stands to wall walk ups) and some are not so challenging.  I enjoy each workout just the same.  I am still adding in more cardio and fitness classes but know that I would not be seeing the large increase in strength and muscle that I have without Fitmixer Bootcamp.  I love it and will be sad when it’s over.

Now, on to this weeks workouts and a little motivational message…

For this treadmill workout, I would recommend starting at a slower pace if you are not an avid runner.  Not only is my body used to running, I have long legs so a fast speed is fine for me.  It might not be for you so adjust as needed :-)

The e-card up above is perfect for this week as I felt I accomplished a little something.   The First time we did L-wall stands I could barely keep my feet on the wall, let alone hold it for 1 minute.  This week we had to begin in a L-wall stand, then walk our feet up the wall as we walked our hands back towards the wall.  Finishing in a wall handstand facing the wall.  I watched the video thinking, “yeah right!”  We were supposed to do 3… I did 4!  Woo hoo!  Although they might not have looked as perfect as the instructor, I still did them and that my friends is progress :-)

Happy Dance!

Yesterday the Love Nugget got to play with two of his good buddies.  We went to the park to meet some friends and play for a bit before we went to Costco.

Luckily we beat the cold weather that rolled in early afternoon.  It was nice for a change but made me want to get in my PJ’s and cuddle!

Later in the day, his other buddy came over to play.

They had fun running around being crazy boys!

This morning I had an apt to get my hair done so we had to get up and out the door by 9:00.  I don’t usually take the Love Nugget but decided to give it a try.  He was sooo good!  Sat in his stroller reading and playing games.  Such a good little guy :-)

For the rest of the day today we are relaxing, enjoying this cooler weather.  This weekend we don’t have too much planned which is kind of nice for a change.  We have a photo shoot on Sunday and that’s about it!  I’m sure something will come up though.

QUESTION – What was the last thing that happened to you that made you want to do a happy dance?
